The Roman Road:

Historical monument LMI Code: HD-I-was-03 186 Date: 2nd – 3rd, Century, AD
The Roman road connected the Camp of Cigmau, beeing a road paved with polygonal slabs (via silica layer) and in some places archaeologists discovered that the road has 70 cm depth which justify the preservation untill now. The road was provided with gutters which collected rainwater from the roofs and road.

On The Roman period the roads were generic called “via stratae” because they were made of several layers.

The Roman road in this sector was a secondary one (secondary roads were the main roads linking between different settlements and main roads - rustic cottages, villages, or roads that have gained economic importance over time, which connected to the system central communications, quarrying, salt, iron mining or precious metals) but also was a main road (major roads, main, rank, military roads were primarily the interior roads and limes,
unifying the camps each other and ensured rapid movement of troops from one place to another, generally trade routes, routes of entry of imported products and products intended for export output), because it was circulated extensively in Roman times by a number of high officials of the province. Currently there is only 165 m length.
